We will be using collage to create abstract figures from a live model. The session will be an opportunity to take part in something creative, meet the Hospital Rooms team and learn more about the art project taking place at Springfield in 2022. Absolutely no experience in art is necessary and all materials will be provided. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
